Keep Calm And…..


From today onwards I’m going to write about certain things that I have come across in life and the things that I have learnt over time. I hope you will like it..So stay tuned with the “Keep Calm Series"  

Today I’m going to talk about life. Let me ask you a question. “Do you love your life?” I guess most of you will answer it as “yes”, without any hesitation. Let me ask you another question. “Do you like your life?” Well…some people will not come up with a straight forward “YES” for this question.

All of us have issues in our lives. We complain a lot about them. We compare our lives with other people’s lives and the worst thing is..We jump into conclusions.
We think that the others are leading perfect lives while we are living a nightmare. But the million dollar question would be, “Do we know these people well enough?”

Before comparing ourselves with our neighbor, friend, cousin etc, we need to know how much we know about what they are really going through. Just because they have a good job, a big house, a nice car, and  smile on their face, that doesn’t mean that their lives are filled with happiness.

OK.. let me take myself for example. Most of my acquaintances think that my life is a bed of roses. My bosom friends know that I have some issues, whereas I and only I know what is actually going on in my life. I too have ups and downs..after all I’m human…right :)
So what can I do about it? I mean what can anyone do about it?  In our dreams we can have the best life we can ever think of, but in reality, we may have to go through so many problems.

Of course you can work hard and overcome your problems and make your own path towards success. On the other hand you can just be happy with what you have got, and learn to live with the unavoidable circumstances.

What cannot be cured should be endured huh?

Over the time one thing I have learnt is that, I should never compare myself with the others. Earlier I did it a lot, but it led me nowhere. I now know comparing myself with the others, is the worst harm I can do to myself.
Once I came across the saying 

"If we all threw our problems in a pile and saw everyone else's, we'd grab ours back."

True isn’t it? We may see a smiling friend and envy him for being so happy, but we may have no idea about the pain he hides behind that smile.

You may not have the job you wanted, you may not be happy with your house, you may have problems with your family members or you may be having health issues.

Yet you can always work hard and achieve your goals…improve your life conditions. But if you don’t succeed, and due to some unavoidable reasons, your dream life and your real life are not even remotely alike, Don’t worry. Be happy with what you have got. Look at the positives. Someone out there may be praying day and night to have a life like yours.  

This is something that life has taught me.. 

So live the life you have got. Make the most of it. Learn from the mistakes and work towards achieving your goals. Help others and do not make the mistake of comparing yourself with the others. Take time off to be with your loved ones and don’t take life too seriously….After all no one is going to live forever..

Life is tough my friends....but no need to worry. Just

Keep Calm and LIVE YOUR LIFE! Poster


  1. Life is like a roller coaster. It has its ups and downs...but it's your choice to either scream or enjoy the ride. Be Positive. :)

    1. Yeah..everything depends as to how we look at it..right?

  2. I didn't know 'like' and 'love' could make such a big difference to what 'life' means in those two sentences.

    Well, I can write a blog post itself about this,... well come to think about that... I already have written several.

    I think I'm going to get some food for thought in this new series of yours. Keep rolling.

    1. We all love our lives don't we? If someone is coming to kill us, we will not just stand in front of him and say "OK fine kill me" right? we will do anything to protect ourselves from getting hurt.I guess that is because we love our lives. But we may not "like" that life due to so many reasons.

      Thanks for commenting Dude..(or should I call you Henry :-SS :-SS )

    2. Call me Dude please, Actually this is my old WordPress profile name. Once I upgraded to Google +, I lost my old Blogger profile. Still, I'm the same old Dude. :D

  3. We all have our own definition for life. Great blog. God bless your hands. :)

    1. Welcome to my blog Mr.Lonely..and thanks for your comment :-h

  4. Wow! another wonderful write up sis...keep on posting I love to read them cos it is so interesting and unique!

    1. Thank you soooo much for your encouraging words sis :-f

  5. I will definitely say 'yes' to both questions. I love my life. Every minute of it.(not actually. deduct the minutes I spend for crying!)Whatever happens I think that life is too short to cry over spilt milk. If u wait to enjoy life until all your problems are solved you will die without getting a chance. So remember 'life is full of smiles, sobs and sniffles, sniffles predominating.' (Gift of the Magi) visit my new blog. I am your B.L.

    1. /If u wait to enjoy life until all your problems are solved you will die without getting a chance//

      Actually I think this is one of my weaknesses. I always wait for everything to settle down before I start doing something new. It's high time for me to change I guess...

      And I visited your new blog too.. :)


Please let me know what you felt after reading my posts. I really value your ideas. Thank you :)
